HAPPY NEW YEAR L'SHANAH TOVAH TO ALL MY FRIENDS IN CUBA, INDONESIA, INDIAN COUNTRY, USA, FRANCE etc
SHANA TOVA FROM MIAMI
HA OLAM, LAND OF THE FREE, HOME OF THE
ADON OLAM, HELP US SAVE OUR FRIENDS FROM
DARKNESS (events of this week in the
Middle East and I am ashamed to say, in Sydney!)
5773 has arrived for all of us.
It is good to remember what JK had said:
Many people in this world are independent but few are free.
Walked on the last day of 5772, in Miami,
near the house of my sister, who was away in Jamaica.
What was I thinking?
My Indonesian friends, especially Pak Joe
My sister is in Jamaica. My brothers are in
Portland. Kickapoo sister in Eagle Pass. Omaha relatives in Walthill. My Indian
colleagues. I cannot find my mother. May be a new life in Bruselas. The Happy
Girl of Asnieres.
it was a good beginning of 5773
Yes the mind can think when it is quiet,
but not a mind in the Yogic Sense, but the mind is quiet when you are walking.
All of a sudden you begin to notice and take pleasure in plants with beautiful
flowers, the little creek with coconut trees on its bank, you have seen it many
times before, but not with the same eyes.
Only when the mind is quiet that you really
can observe, said JK, for the mind is sensitive to extraordinary beauty.
Good News all around.
Usain Bolt, the Jamaican Hero
The Cuban lovers are in Varadero. Sister
arrives later in the evening with a mission accomplished. She had managed the
world champion Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt to donate a shoe that carried him to
victory in the Olympics. She would give it to the American Cancer Society, to
auction off to raise funds for research. My sister is a good lady; appreciative
of the excellent care she received while she was suffering from cancer.
Brother Joseph drives me to the new offices
of the Immigration, very modern and very friendly and people wanting to help, I
could see Barack Obama’s new America of ordinary people helping one another.
It was good to welcome 5773 in the company
of my sister and her husband. After lighting the candle, saying the prayers and
drinking the wine, our discussion centred around the immense value of
relationships, and that we are happy that good people have chosen to keep our
company. Mitakuye Oyasin, the Lakota say, we are all related, and thus are
responsible for one another as well.
We had a nice dinner of spicy wild birds
that sister had brought in from Jamaica with mango chutney and rice and peas.
It was late in the evening; we had just
finished our dinner, when the news arrived from Bruselas. Good News.
Grateful on behalf of my friends and myself
5773 has begun well.
